Martial Arts Topics / New to the DBMA Forum

Hi Gents,

Another new guy here. Many of you I know from warriortalk and other forums, and I see many familiar names here. I have been meaning to stop by here for a while.

A little about me: I am a Deputy Sheriff for a fairly rural county in TN, and have been in law enforcement and security work for over 2 decades (that means I'm old!). I started training in martial arts when I was about 12, starting with Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Isshin-Ryu, etc. In the police academy in 1986, we received a lot of defensive tactics training, and I went on to become a DT instructor at my old department, and spent many years on SWAT.  I also trained for several years in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu and Krav Maga. Most recently, I have been training in WWII combatives on my own, and with a local instructor who has a strong background in Judo, Silat and Panantukan. I have attended seminars in AMOK from Tom Sotis, and a couple with Crafty at the Warrior Talk Symposium. I wish I lived close enough for much more training with Crafty, and hope to in the future. I also have taken several gun and knife classes from Gabe Suarez.

It's great to be here, and I look forward to learning and talking with everyone.
